At this point there is very little Shia LaBeouf could do or wear to surprise us. His DGAF personal style, part hipster part crusty hippie, has made him one of our favorite 'out there' fashion inspirations. So we're always curious to see his style latest transformation. On Friday, LaBeouf was spotted in Prague wearing his John McEnroe costume (he's playing the tennis legend in an upcoming biopic). The actor's throwback court fit included some very short off-white shorts, a navy T-shirt, dad sneakers, and a Nike racquet bag. His bare upper legs reflected the sun like a snowcapped mountain top and his thigh tattoos were finally in full view. Look, we love it that brands like Reebok and Fila are championing a rebirth of retro sportswear, but the length of the actor's shorts is aggressively short. Costume or not.

This picture is one of the many, many reasons we're team LaBeouf here at GQ. But like the rest of his boundary pushing style, this outfit wouldn't work as well on anyone else. We definitely wouldn't recommend you wear shorts this short out this weekend for example. Instead, you can get the same nostalgic tennis effect while covering a little bit more of your upper thighs, just in time for the US Open. Give yourself at least another two inches, to make sure your shorts hit just above the knee.

As for the curly mullet LaBeouf has been growing since we saw him on the steps at Cannes in May, we're all for natural hair but mullets won't be trending again anytime soon.
